A propos de cet article

Language: N/A. Brand New Book. Nonprofit CEOs and executive directors from 1,585 member-serving organisations were surveyed about their organisational environment, board structure, board selection procedures and challenges, governance models they employ, board development and self-assessment, and a host of other questions related to the governance practices of their organisation. The results will help you understand patterns of related behaviour within organisations that support high board performance and that are intentional and not dependent on industry sector or capacity. This study is the first to offer a representative snapshot of current governance practices in these associations and member serving organisations. You ll find ample insight into important questions such as the following: How do organisations attract the right competencies to their boards? Is there a sweet spot for board size? In which areas of responsibility do CEOs rate their boards highest, and where do they find them lacking? How well are boards assessing and reporting on their own performance? A summary of the key findings, 50 tables showing the results of specific questions, and the authors analysis make this an exceptional resource for benchmarking your own governance practices and to start, or continue, a conversation within your own organisation about how to achieve the qualities of a high-functioning board.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Boards matter to organizational performance. But the diversity of the nonprofit sector means there is no single formula for effective governance. Structure, size, rate of growth, geography, and other organizational differences can cloud our understanding of board performance. The study behind this book,research produced through an ASAE Foundation collaboration with Indiana University, pays special attention to the intentional decisions boards and staff make to achieve high performance regardless of context.

Prior to this study, research into the governing practices of associations and other member-serving organizations was hard to come by. This study is the first to offer a representative snapshot of current governance practices in these associations and member-serving organizations. You'll find ample insight into important questions like the following:

  • How do organizations attract the right competencies to their boards?
  • Is there a sweet spot for board size?
  • In which areas of responsibility do CEOs rate their boards highest, and where do they find them lacking?
  • How well are boards assessing and reporting on their own performance?

A summary of the key findings, 50 tables showing the results of specific questions, and the authors' analysis make this an exceptional resource for benchmarking your own governance practices and to start, or continue, a conversation within your own organization about how to achieve the qualties of a high-functioning board.
